Clean Water for All Project aka Sand Dams
We are delighted to tell you that the sand dam in Kenya, that you have helped to provide has now been built and is 'maturing nicely'
In 2018, the Club raised money at the Annual Duck race, to enable a community in Kenya, Africa, to have clean water. This in turn will enable them to grow crops and have a better diet, and the children will be able to get an education, rather than spend hours a day collecting water, which is often dirty.
The great news is that the sand dam that the Rotary Club of Alloway has sponsored has been constructed. Ckick the following link for a report from Excellent Development
Here's a short video, explaning what a Sand Dam is:
On Saturday 23rd June 2018, the Rotary Club of Alloway ran their 3rd Annual Duck Race as part of the Holy Fair, on the Low Green.
Ducklings raced in 10 heats, before a final race. The winner of the duckling race was Helen Lewis, 2nd was Lynn Burns, and 3rd place went to Joan Young. Corporate ducks just ran in one race. The winner of the corporate race was A1 Ironmongers. Congratulations!
29 local businesses donated at least £90 each, and will continue to receive publicity on this page. Please support these businesses, with your custom, because without them, we would not be where we are now.
A fantastic result resulted in over £5500 being raised from this one event. With the addition of a grant from our district, and further donations, we were able to provide sufficient funds to enable the construction of an entire new dam.
A huge thank you to all those who participated in the Annual Duck race. A great achievement.
